Here you can take a surfing lesson or just kick back, relax and enjoy the beach. Go boutique shopping on David Low Way and sip a coffee at one of Coolum's cafes. In the summer holidays, check out the Coolum Twilight Markets, which offers everything from new and handmade clothing to local jewellery, arts and crafts. Aqua Park Coolum is an exciting aquatic play area with activities suitable for children as young as six.
If you're an active, outdoorsy type and don't mind an adventure with a terrific view, you can climb Mt. Coolum. It takes about 45 minutes to trek to the summit of this mountain, but once you get there, the views will make it more than worth your while. There are 360-degree views of the Sunshine Coast that include everything from the ocean to rolling hills. Click here to find out more.
